It’s my birthday and I’ll cry if I want to.

Posted in Uncategorized on August 23, 2012 by MISANTHROPIST

Well it’s my birthday, damn I’m getting old. Apparently I’ve pissed three people off lately, my circle is getting smaller but I enjoy that. The ones that matter are the ones who are still here. People are gradually learning that if they go against me they’re going to lose. I’m not a douche, I know how that last sentence sounded. They wronged me, then suffered the consequences. Maybe if they’d gone a different way about whatever issues that had with me then It wouldn’t have ended so badly for them. Just to clarify, I am an asshole. I know this but one thing I am not is a douche. There’s a huge difference. That said thanks for sticking by this blog and continuing to read my posts. It is appreciated.

Happy Birthday to me.

I’m really hating on facebook today.

I’m adding it to my shit-list.

Facebook, again…

Posted in Misanthropy, People, Relationships, The Internet. with tags , , , , on August 22, 2012 by MISANTHROPIST

We all know Facebook, many of us here are probably signed up to it. Facebook provides a platform by which people can connect with friends, relatives and even total strangers. It has made the world a much smaller place in the time it has been around. Facebook also functions as a business that offers a service, it is free so it doesn’t make profit using traditional methods. It does make its profit through advertising revenue and the like. Everyone is on this network so advertising space there must be worth a mint. I haven’t been a member very long, because I couldn’t be bothered, partly because I didn’t like many people I knew and that I wasn’t comfortable displaying my life for anyone to see. I also didn’t want anyone to be able to contact me. Facebook seemed like a lot of hassle. In the short time I have been on there I’m finding that I like it less and less.

I think that facebook has devalued friendship, reduced it to likes and the occassional wall post. I have massive contempt for people who post any ‘like this if’ status. Whether it is for a good cause or not it is never going to achieve anything. People who post these should be actively mocked and scorned. When you boil it down it is just attention whoring. I find Facebook to be a hub of attention whoring and throw-away comments with varying degrees of idiocy. I have a special disdain for people who collect friends, people they do not know or have never spoken to in RL. That is another thing, people who have lots of friends act as if it is a status symbol. Your number of friends on Facebook is not an actual measure of your number of friends. Many small things annoy me about Facebook, from the way it runs all the way down to the lowly individual user in a sea of millions. I don’t like how they use people’s information and pictures for targeted advertising and such and how Facebook will make a poor game based off a franchise and rake in the cash. I understand that they have to run a business even if their means are questionable.

The kicker and what really makes Facebook a headache is the people. I don’t understand how people can lay their lives out this way, I’ve seen pictures of drugs, evidence of affairs, religious/political arguments on Facebook all being pushed by individuals unto others. I’ve even seen companies advertising and trying to clean up their image after announcing their stance on a religious issue. I think Facebook has become much more than it was intended to be and it has had un-intended effects on friendship and the way we socialize. Not all of them good, with some showing what an idiot the average person really is and the darker side of society. Facebook has also served as a tool, cataloging every persons information for use in marketing products and some have suggested surveillance. Facebook has even been used as evidence in a court of law.

This is Facebook.

Arguing with idiots on Facebook, Part Deux.

The other night I got extremely drunk on the nastiest alcohol that I’ve ever had the displeasure of putting past my lips, first bad move. Now the second should have been a no-brainer, I went on Facebook drunk. There was no emo status, none of the usual bullshit. I just thought I’d try to talk to that friend one more time, I offered a line for him to come and talk to me. Unfortunately this line was cast through some bitch that has his balls in her purse. I tried to be civil then she started acting like a bitch so I let loose on her. Just because she’s a girl doesn’t mean she gets off easily. From this clusterfuck I present to you: Arguing With Idiots on Facebook, part two.

Hey ask steven if he thinks he can just man up and talk to me, I’m not shaun. I just want to talk, you know like men not bitches. I’d rather settle this properly. Couldn’t care if he never talks to me again. I just want an audience with agatha. Do you think you could ask him, he got things mixed up. Probably because he was drunk.

  • WP
    Look, I’m guessing the only reason your asking me is because your not getting an answer from him?.. As you know, if steggs don’t wanna do something, no one can force him :s I don’t know what’s up with you guys, but I’m not getting involved.. Sorry babe, but this is between you and him. Why don’t you just walk to his and bang on the door, can’t ignore ya then.

WP
·  And steggs remembers everything when he’s drunk, trust me! He may act fucked, buut he’s remembered things in such detail at times it freaks me out lol

  • AM
    I’ve already looked. I’d rather salvage this shitstorm of a friendship before it goes to hell. I honestly couldn’t care if he never talks to me again but you have more power over him than you know. Ever been fucked up on alcohol and anti-depressants? I bet you haven’t. Anyway I understood. It doesn’t matter. Life goes on. I’m reaching out to you as a last resort. You know what’s up wren. I know enough about your relationship to know that he tells you what’s going on. His circle is getting smaller so I know he’s confided in you because lets face it who else has he got?
    I’d rather not involve anyone, just me and him. I’m not shaun I just want to talk to him but he’s passive agressive as hell and would rather ignore his problems than talk about them. That’s him. I just want to talk. I’d rather not get into bullshit. He may remember shit when he is drunk but alcohol and anti-depressants are a different thing. He thinks what he thinks, I know what I know. Whatever. Please pass this message on if he ignores it then it isn’t my problem, the ball is in his court. This is my last attempt at reparation or restitution. I’m not saying I was without fault. Anyway if he refuses this last chance then it is his own doing and you should probably leave me with a number because I don’t want to deal with him when he is coked up or otherwise. Anyways, thanks for talking to me.
  • AM
    It’s easier this way, at least for me anyway. Wish him a happy life for me. Tell him to get tested. Fucking ellie was a bad move, I wouldn’t want to know what STD’s she has. I just don’t want him dying before his time because of that skank. He did some dumbness. Please encourage him to get tested. Anyway, He never should have come inside her bareback. Please wren, get him to get his ass tested. Thanks for talking to me. I won’t bother you again.
  • AM
    Last thing, I know he can be a nob but seriously, Look after him. He needs all the help he can get. He’s like my little brother. Doesn’t matter if we’re arguing. I want him to be alright. Thanks. I won’t bother you again.
  • WP
    Firstly, yes I have been, try being 13 and having your stomach pumped after an overdose of anything in the medicine cabinet and a shit load of whiskey. So thank you for your assumptions, but you don’t know me well enough to comment.. And fine, I’ll mention it to him, but I know he’s gonna be more annoyed you tried to use me to get round him. I am not a toy, but because of the relationship you’ve had for so long, I’m willing to give it a go. However, do me a favour and keep your sarcasm to yourself, as if steggs does wants to talk to you coked up or otherwise you should snatch the opportunity presented to you, in any format it comes in, given he’s one of your oldest friends. And to be honest with you, I don’t think your in any position to talk about steggs’ social life or agenda, when you’re obviously biding for his attention at the moment, so try and be nice ay? I’ll message him now. After that, your on your own too…
  • WP
    And I’ve always tried my best at that. I adore that man more than people realise, and I’d never let anything happen to him when he’s with me.

AM
He is a bit of a doughnut. I just don’t want him killing himself. He told me me more than you know. He’s supposed to be annoyed it’s the only way he will notice. My assumptions are based on fact. I comment whenever I feel. If I didn’t know enought I wouldn’t comment. Maybe you should watch what you tell him. In reality I don’t care, I know you’ll look after him. Why do you think I messaged you?

  • Ah you’re making assumptions now, not a good position to be in really. I don’t care about his attention. I care about his welfare in general. So yeah, once again, you’re very, very wrong. It wouldn’t surprise me if he is reading this over your shoulder right now. I’m not doubting your capacity as a friend. I just don’t want him fucking himself up. My sarcasm is just something you’ll have to deal with. If you can’t then we don’t need to be having this convo. I don’t have to be nice, just honest. Surely you’d expect that from your oldest friend. Our friendship is irrelevant, his welfare is relevant. I’m on my own, okay thats cool. I was okay with you, you mentioning the sarcasm means you’ve read his messages, which means you’ve talked. That was all that I needed. Thanks for that.
    Tell me did you mean biding or bidding?
    Anyway I couldn’t care, it doesn’t matter. You re-lay the message or you don’t. You really have no idea what I know do you?
  • AM
    Anyway, this conversation is over. You either talk to him or you don’t. Which is it?

           WP
Dude, I work for a fucking living and this shit woke me up, but I still fucking told him, so go fuck yourself. I hope it works out.. Now please, leave me outta this so I don’t get long messages of your shit? Go sort it yourself, not my problem. And I love how you mock my intelligence as if your smarter than me, I don’t doubt you are, but someone who’s on their fucking arse doing nothing all their life, and making their friends pay for trips ect?… Doesn’t sound like intelligence got you far, take it job centre isn’t paying out enough huh?

AM

  • You work, so do most other people. That isn’t a surprise to me. And I love how you try to shove it in my face as if you put me in my place or something. Now that’s funny. Thanks for telling him. I am infinitly more intelligent than you, that’s for sure. You know jack shit, my intelligence got me further than an office job at the DVLA. Oh and mummy/grandpa got that little gig for you so you really don’t have license to comment dear. I don’t sit on my ass so that shows how little you know. All my life is an overstatement. He paid for that because he wanted too and he’ll get his money back. Again, how little you know. I guess a little office job at the DVLA is paying just enough for you to get by. Must be nice. You keep going with that, hope it serves you well. Job centre doesn’t pay well but it’s better than nothing when you’re looking for a job. Sorry it’s been 17 hours before I could talk to you, I had better things to do. Probably sounds rude but yeah I’ve got shit to do, I’d rather not waste my time arguing with you Et cetera. You’re not even half right about me and you’re less than funny. I was fine until you started trying to shit on me. I’ll admit, I’m not good at this, I’d rather talk to josephine personally and cut you out of the equation but it seems like you still have his balls in your purse so you’re the boss. Oh and 13 and getting your stomach pumped, it isn’t my fault you were an idiot when you were a kid, did you really think that’d pull some heartstrings? Like I’d feel sorry for you or something?
    It took you three hours to reply to a simple message, if it bothers you that much then why reply?
    Should have just said fuck off Et cetera. Seriously now, that ellie girl is a skank, have josephine get tested. Wouldn’t want him getting something nasty. It’s funny that I actually fooled myself into believing you were okay, my mistake. We all make those. Honestly I only talked to you because I was drunk and I felt bad about the whole steven thing, I don’t feel so bad anymore, this is all ripples from yesterday evening. Well whatever, this conversation is over. We’ve said what we need to say, now you don’t ever have to talk to the mean-nasty ever again. Thanks for your help, misguided commentary and little snipes that fall so far off the mark it’s laughable. Reading your little message was comical thanks for the hearty chuckle and the memories. Laters…

AM
Oh and please stop sending me sims social shit Et cetera from your office or home or wherever. It’s fucking annoying. Must be a great job if you have time to fuck around on Facebook. Again it’s fucking annoying. Please cease and desist. Thanks. That’d be awesome. Don’t bother replying. Wouldn’t want you to waste your time. As I said before, this conversation is over.

WP

Fine, your right, this is childish, but I don’t work for the DVLA. I haven’t for years.. And I did speak to steggs, it didn’t work. And it took three hours because I get up at 4 in the morning for work.And I finish work at 3.. Hence the Sims shit.. Get the fuck over it.

AM

I don’t know about where you work. I really don’t take that much interest in you although it’s good you’re out of that line of work it must be boring. Anyway good luck to you. I’m over it. Laters. I’m not going to bother you anymore cause you probably have a long day ahead of you. I’m an asshole but I’m not that much of an asshole. Anyways josephine’s mind is made up. Aurevoir, Adieu, Goodnight and thanks for the help.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

I will apologise for the format but give it a read, you might even get a good laugh out of it. After looking at all this I can’t help thinking, damn, I wouldn’t want to argue with me. I have a long history with this girl, one of mutual hatred and disgust. This was really therapeutic for me. I’m not even mad anymore. I lost a friend, sure. But I got to take a few shots at that bitch. She finally gave me a reason. That was all that I needed.

About that update.

My good friend and I recently stopped talking, over some tobacco. What kind of friendship breaks over some tobacco?
Anyway tobacco was taken after he slept on my couch because he got drunk, had a bad night and decided to pop some antidepressants like a retard. I tried talking to him about it but he’s a passive agressive man-child who doesn’t have the balls to have a proper conversation about our situation. Anyways that’s done now, we won’t be talking again and I’m probably better off for it. It provided some decent laughs though, stay tuned for arguing with idiots on Facebook, part two. It has gotten to the point now where I don’t even want to talk about it. I’m just glad it is over. Why do I bother with people?

He came to my place to pick up his bass guitar and amp, waited for me to get it down the stairs, sat had a cigarette, then started arguing with me. As if I wouldn’t have given his things back to him. I mean, I’ve known the guy for 15 years. I’m an asshole but I’m not a douchebag. His slyness really got to me more than anything. I’m not even mad anymore. Screw that guy.

I lost two friends in seven days.

I’ll update you on this development when I don’t want to punch someone in the face…

Olympic Madness.

Posted in England, London 2012, Misanthropy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 9, 2012 by MISANTHROPIST

I recently saw a newspaper article about an olympic spectator with Parkinson disease who was arrested by officers of the Surrey police force for not smiling in a disproportionate response to a perceived threat. Are we really that paranoid right now?

I supposed our paranoia is warranted judging by another news report I read about a man sneaking de-activated weaponry through olympic security to prove its flaws.  This man, arrested by police is an ex-soldier and martial arts instructor aged 54 who hardly fits the bill for a terrorist. Especially the current breed. Why didn’t the police just pull him aside and ask him if he was alright, I’m sure that would be sufficient to tell if he harbored any ill will.

Then I read that the man had a number of knives on him which turned out to be rubber and for display, presumably for martial arts purposes. So first I ask myself why the harsh response from police but then I wonder why he would think it a good idea to take rubber knives into an olympic event. What damage could he do with a rubber knife?
Bear in mind the only description I got was a ‘Rubber knives for display purposes.’

I’m not sure what is more idiotic, the response of the police or the guy bringing rubber knives into a major event with him, I’m not going to forgive him because of Parkinson’s because bringing rubber knives into an olympic event is not a symptom. Then again how far has his Parkinson’s progressed, not far if he is going to major sporting events alone. I know Parkinson’s can cause someone to act differently than normal but it looks like in a major sporting event that unusual behaviour can cause you to be arrested.

I went into this thinking the police over-reacted but now I’m not 100% sure of the either side. Either way the whole situation is madness.
